Frederick Town History Series – The 1800s
3 sessions • 4.5 hours


Based on the award-winning documentary series Frederick Town, selections of the documentary are embedded into the sessions, along with additional content, “show and tell” and group discussion. Produced to commemorate the 1745 founding of Frederick in the backlands of the Maryland colony, the documentary features more than a dozen on-camera historians and commentators. Frederick’s story is further illustrated with vintage artwork, photographs and artifacts, scenic mood footage and quotes and diary passages. The documentary covers the 1700s through the present day to include Native American and colonist history including early trade and the pursuit of riches.

Note: This fall session series focuses solely on the 1800s. Please join us!
